All K – 12 students may ride the morning bus; the afternoon bus is limited to students in grades 5 – 12 unless riding with an older sibling (i.e. students in grades K – 4 may ride the afternoon bus with an older sibling). Bus passes may be purchased annually or for just the fall or spring semester. Pay in full or choose monthly payment option.

On Campus Student Parking
On campus parking is available for juniors and seniors (sophomores may apply as they receive their driver's licenses). All students who wish to drive to school must first properly register their vehicles by submitting the Student Parking Application along with all documentation and paying student parking fee online. A parking spot (or lot) will be assigned. Parking applications/fees are required even if the student will be parking in the gravel lot by the Farmhouse. For further details, log in on MyBC/Parents to see the Family Handbook.
The majority of the front parking lot at the Redmond Campus Main Building is reserved for parent and guest parking. During morning drop-off there is additional parking available behind the Main Building. Parents may also park in the gravel lot by the Farmhouse. There is limited guest parking at the Upper School Building. There is ample parent/guest parking at Valley Campus.
